Thanks...

Check out Timber LED's. Have used 4/200 watt ones in my 3' X 7' grow space. Gonna add 3/100 watt Daisy's to aid in flowering for my next grow. I love 'em.

From all that I have researched BudgetLED look the best so far. But there are so many that look alike.

I think you are ok budget wise, not sure if your time line but you could also plan on doing two lights, pick one up now and block off half the tent while they get bigger and grab the second on a Black Friday deal in time to open the other two feet. I like HLG/Marshydro/Spider

Oh, and whatever you get make sure it has a dimmable driver, LEDs are serious and full blast can be rough on lil ones

Actually no hurry really and I like the idea of Black Friday. Dimmable yes.

I can save you a lot of headaches here... been there, done that. took me 3 purchases to get the performance I wanted in same size tent, then upgraded to a 2 x 2.5 x 6.5ft by Gorilla Tent. Love it.

Back to lights. First one was good just not enough power. 2nd one was more power but still in the line of lights
I learned is called " Blurple " for the color spectrum they call full... slow poor growth especially in veg. heat, etc.

Did some more research, watched video's on the tube... learned even more. and if you cannot afford to build your own very nice ones, the open panel lights with daylight spectrum is the way to go.. still a full spectrum light and even has a UV for late in harvest..

Spider Farmer SF 1000 ... not 1000w just a name... after 2 grows I'd say it's equivilant to a 400w hps without the heat. Veg growth is not just great but stupendous.. enormous . Top plants at 2wks old, flower at 3.. you'll kill it.

HGL also makes a nice panel light using the same Samsung Diodes.. Quantum Board is a made up name by HGL because they thought it sounded cool.. a board is a board. both run same nice ballasts also, both adjustable but the HGL is easier to do so.. personally I left mine at factory settings so far.

My light has gone up a little bit since I bought it for $249... but do NOT PURCHASE a purple glower

Photo: 3wks old, veg'd only 3wks old and a few days into flowering...
